We had some summer weather here a couple of weeks ago and it was finally warm enough to leave the doors open at night. This is an occurrence that happens about six days per year in this neck of the woods. I got the old screen door out of the garage rafters and realized it was getting pretty ratty looking. I decided to make this using some reclaimed doug fir and bargain walnut I had laying around. I even had the screen stuffed in a cubbyhole from projects long past. I needed to go to Home Depot for the hinges and welting but neglected to get door handles so I made one for the outside and figured you don’t need a handle to push a door open.
My ulterior motive for posting this is to show my friend Oldnovice my lack of mitering skills (photo 4). The rest of the photos are cropped because I ain’t cleaning off the back porch just for you guys!
